  • Description


    Hi. My wee slice of paradise is a 15 acre lifestyle block overlooking Mercury Bay at Kuaotunu on the east coast of the Coromandel Peninsula which I love sharing with visitors. I have 7 Alpaca, 4 cattle, 2 miniature cattle, a wee dog and a cat. I am a New Zealander, well travelled and happy to help you plan your time in our beautiful country. I love music, travelling, walking and gardening. Sadly, my husband of 30 years passed away recently so I need help to look after the animals and property.

    My property is a non-smoking property. I am sorry but I will not consider anyone under 21 years of age.

    Our beaches here at Kuaotunu are stunning and just 5 mins walk away over farm land. From my house you can walk to a very cool local coffee place, rustic beach pizza café (licensed) and general store with the best ice creams on the peninsula! There is often live music at the café. There are many other gorgeous beaches 10 minutes drive or more. The main town centre is Whitianga which is approx. 20 mins drive. From my home you can't see or hear another house or road though there are both nearby.You will love the peace and beauty and once you see the views you won't want to leave!
